    I wanted to ask if any of you know of a person transferring to ENT from another non-surgical residency. I am asking about transferring from a very good and well known program, good board scores some research (some of which in good places) including some ENT research and possible publication. Main drawback- IMG but from pretty well known place.
    Any input appreciated.

      I understand that internship has to be a surgical one, but there is the option of doing a surgical internship again after a medical internship. I know of many cases where surgeons after one year decide it's not for them and transfer to medicine and they start at intern level.
      My question is mainly if you have ever heard of someone transferring from another field into ENT?

        Yes. I know of someone in another program who matched in internal medicine. Midway through intern year realized the mistake. Approached the ENT chair - spent 2 years in the lab in the department and then got a spot. Obviously had to repeat internship. Overall 8 years.
